As moms, we all want the best for our kids. We want our children to be protected at all times. We will do everything in our power to keep them safe from all harm. I remember one time after his painting class, my son told me that one of his classmates, a girl older than my son, threw him a piece of Mega Bloks that hit his head. He cried, of course! This happened after class while they were already playing. My son, however, was playing on his own, so there was no reason for this girl to throw this hard plastic toy in my son’s direction.

The pain in my son’s head lasted for several days. I told one of the owners of the school about it, as well as the school staff so that they can remind the bigger kids not to hurt the smaller children while playing. Nope, it didn’t get to the point where I had to seek the help of a lawyer Tucson for the personal injury that my son suffered, but I made sure that this girl won’t hurt my son again. I instructed my yaya to keep a close watch on this girl so that this thing won’t happen again .

Has something similar happened to your children? What did you do?

  1. When I was in elementary, I was constantly bullied because of the way I look…I was very, very dark with a thick mop of hair and with an underbite….they called me Pangit, Negrita, Yakmo, etc….but I never cried and would never let anyone touch me. I just let it all poured into my head and then I blew up. I would fight back….I fought with boys and girls and I was in constant fights because I never back down whenever I was bullied. Lumalaban ako. Though it really hurt inside, it took me more than 20 years to get over my low self-esteem about my appearance.

  2. –i experienced bullying when I was in my first grade. It was frustrating to me, but when my nanay told me to fight back, everything changed completely. I told my little boy the same thing. But of course, I also reminded him to be nice and gentle to others especially the little ones. I told him to report to teachers and to me whenever a kid hurt him, I taught him to talk back. I guess there’s nothing wrong with it, as long as you also teach them the limits. Once instance, a boy was trying to push him away from where he was seated, and in a firm voice he said, “hey, why are you pushing me?”, and the boy stopped. It feels good when you know that your kids know how to protect themselves….just be sure that you know what’s going on,,,always ask them how’s everything in the school…

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
